In an interview on NPR, an operating room technician who worked in a hospital in South Florida for 68 years was asked what was the secret to his long career.  I wish I could remember his name; but, alas, it slid out of my brain.  A Christian man, he said that he always followed his mother’s advice.  She told him again and again during his childhood and young adult years, “Mind your own business.  See everything.  See nothing.  Hear everything.  Hear nothing.”

Perhaps this could be a motto of all ministers.  However, it is certainly good advice for people whose ministry is within the mentally challenged.  In fact, I’m not sure that I can better expand of her advice.
